Home I’m Darling

by Laura Wade

Home, I’m Darling 

How happily married are the happily married? 

Every couple needs a little fantasy to keep their marriage sparkling. But behind the gingham curtains, things start to unravel, and being a domestic goddess is not as easy as it seems.

Our new season kicks off with  Laura Wade’s 2019 Olivier Award-winning comedy about nostalgia and celebrating the present. 

Judy Martin is determined to create the perfect 1950s home. But can the perfect housewife’s marriage survive in the 2010s? 

A sell out at the National Theatre, with a subsequent successful transfer to the West End, Frome Drama is proud to produce the first amateur production of this contemporary gem. 

It’s fizzing full of Old Fashioneds, lively Lindy Hop and the charm of a chiffon layer cake, but this sparkling production is not afraid to take a bite out of gender politics and relationships. 

Home I’m Darling is Directed by Jo Chivers  and Produced by Angela Fairgrieve
